Yesterday (may 16, "happy birthday dear estee") our sea shipment arrived!! I could not believe the big container that came on the semi to our house! The streets are so tiny that we didn't think the driver would be able to get close enough to the house to unload...for sure they'd have to take it back to the warehouse and unload it onto a smaller truck or trucks, so we waited...and waited...and then about 30 miutes of walking around our neighborhood, the driver started in!! It took him a long while to "make the turn" into the neighborhood...but he was a great driver and made it to our house!! The movers arrived and started heafting boxes into the house they sure were strong! Some of those boxes are so heavy! So while they started unloading this giant container, the men from IKEA showed up to deliver and assemble our wardrobes! Yippy skippy!! So now I have a place to hang clothes! It's a strange thing not to have one single closet in our house-not one!!
So, I spent the day opening boxes, opening boxes, and opening boxes!! We didn't have any cleaning supplies/towels/rags, so the kitchen waited to be started...I actually started in my stamp room!!:) Tyler went and bought a vaccume, washer/dryer (I really miss U.S. washers/dryers...and I've only been here for a little over 2 weeks!), microwave...etc. We had to come home-or back to our appartment to sleep, seeing as though we don't have any lights in our house yet! When you move into a home here, you put in the kitchen and lights of any kind! Isn't that crazy!? So we worked hard and as it was getting time for bed, we left and came and slept in our appartment, it's about 25 minutes away from our house.
So, after a long day of working as hard as I could, Myles and Lucy played as hard as they could. It was like Christmas for them to get their old familiar toys...they really played hard. They both just got a cold...so their little noses were just running a marathon!! Lucy didn't sleep well, was feverish....etc.,(and if you can imagine her in my bed sleeping in the middle of tyler and i...she is a lateral kicker...it's so funny...but she is a CRAZY sleeper!!) so here's to hoping we all feel better today!!
Our internet connection is not going to happen for at least another week, so my phone ability is limited to when we come back to the appartment, which we'll do for a few more days...we arer going to Vienna on Monday with Tyler for a business trip! Fun huh?! We leave Monday afternoon and take the train to Vienna, then we'll be home Friday night. I'm not sure if the lights will be able to be in or not...so I don't know if we'll come home to the appartment or our house!! But, hopefully while we're in Vienna, I'll be able to use Tyler's computer and the internet...so we'll see!!
I love you all!! I'm doing better...getting more brave and more brave!! Know we love you!! We'll try to get photos of the house online soon!!! xoxooxoxox
